What is an MHTML file?
MHTML stands for MIME encapsulation of aggregate HTML documents, or MIME HTML. The files are typically saved by a web browser from an .HTML file and are encoded with .MIME encoding.
MHTML files may be saved as .MHT files, although the .mhtml file extension is more commonly used. The .mhtml extension may also be renamed as .eml and opened as an .EML file instead of an MHTML file.

How to open an MHTML file
You can open MHTML files with various web browsers, including Google Chrome, Microsoft Edge, and Internet Explorer, whether you are online or offline. However, MHTML files saved in one web browser may appear differently when opened in another web browser because there is no standardized MHTML format utilized among all browsers.
You can also use applications other than web browsers to open MHTML web archives. Some examples include Microsoft Word, Kingsoft Writer, and WizBrother WizHtmlEditor.
Files with the .mhtml extension may be utilized by cybercriminals to distribute dangerous malware so you should verify the source you received the MHTML file from before opening it.
